Myrtle Beach Golf Hall of Fame Opening in March

By • Feb 25, 2009

Burroughs & Chapin Company, Inc. created the Myrtle Beach Golf Hall of Fame in September 2008 in conjunction with Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday. The Myrtle Beach Golf Hall of Fame will honor the men and women who have played significant roles in all aspects of the Myrtle Beach area golf industry.

Opening in March 2009 in conjunction with the reopening of Pine Lakes Country Club, the Hall of Fame will be located in the Pine Lake’s new Hall of Fame Garden adjacent to the newly renovated clubhouse. Each inductee will be honored in the garden surrounding the Sports Illustrated monument that memorializes the birthplace of the magazine at Pine Lakes in 1954.

Four to six inductees will be honored in the inaugural year with additional members inducted each April on the anniversary of the PGA of America’s foundation; in honor of Robert White, the designer and first professional at Pine Lakes, as well as the first president of the PGA of America.

The newly created Myrtle Beach Golf Hall of Fame is a tremendous way of recognizing and honoring those individuals who were so instrumental in the growth of golf in the Myrtle Beach area and everyone is looking forward to the grand opening.

Born in Durban, South Africa, Azor fell in love with the game a little late in life. He served an apprenticeship in the printing industry and then went into print sales. In the early nineties he moved to the United States with his wife Glynis, and their two sons Dave and Clint. In 1994 he and Glynis established "Electronic Pencil" a Graphic Design company. In 2004 they started a golf magazine; he currently enjoys writing for their publication and writing the editorial for Myrtle Beach Golfaway’s website. “Besides the challenge and fun factor, the camaraderie on the golf course is second to none, it’s a blessing to spend time with good people and play a great game in such tranquil settings,” says Azor.
